Default algae build up

I live in the tropics in the Fiji islands and have recently built my own system. I notice that there is an algae build up in the system - is this normal? Is this harmful? How can I get rid of it?

Block your light source from hitting the water to help control algae. It means that your nutrient solution is healthy and you can't grow grow hydroponicly without algae.
